Update: April, 2020
BSPC Food Pantry – The Food Pantry remains open. Food pantries are essential services, exempt from the stay-at-home order. To stop the spread of COVID-19, we now have drive-through service. No car? Just wait in the garden and a volunteer will bring your food out to you.
Volunteers pack a box of food for each patron. No one is being turned away, double portions are offered, and every effort will be made to provide a 14-day supply of food for anyone who is self-quarantined.
Pantry hours are 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM Monday through Friday.
COMPASS – The urgency to support our working families through the COVID-19 crisis is more critical than ever. Unexpected expenses, including medical, increased utilities, or transportation issues, can cripple a family’s financial stability.
Because the health and safety of our community, staff, and volunteers are extremely important to us, COMPASS will continue to serve community residents through our online portal at www.compass614.com (click the button below to connect). You may also leave us voicemail at 614-463-9612. Walk-in appointments are suspended until further notice.
Broad Street Achievement – The afterschool program is cancelled for the time being. Francine Marchelle is providing on-line support to our students and families.
Third Thursday Legal Clinic – Cancelled.

Broad Street Update:
April 10, 2020
Dear Broad Street Community,
I am writing in the middle of Holy Week. I am grateful that this week is arriving in the midst of these challenging days. We need Holy Week. We need a week that is laser focused on our relationship with God and our connections with one another. We need a week that is totally focused on Jesus.
• We need this reminder that there is no hard road that Jesus hasn’t already walked.
• We need this reminder that our Lord and savior is acquainted with suffering and sorrow.
• More than anything, we need to be reminded that sorrow and suffering and death are not the end of the story.
Easter is our tradition’s most powerful reminder that God has the last word in all things. The pre-recorded Easter service will stream at 8:45 a.m. It will then be available in its entirety to view at any time on Sunday or later in the week. Whether you experience worship at 8:45 a.m. or at another time, we invite you to comment and share the experience with others. If you find the comments and emojis distracting, swipe right. If you have any questions about how to access the church’s worship service on Facebook, please email Kathy Reed at firstname.lastname@example.org
I trust that God will bless our Easter worship this Sunday.
Here are a few additional updates on how Broad Street is responding to the evolving crisis.
• All activities, events and meetings at the church are suspended until further notice. The exception is our Neighborhood Ministries. (See separate Neighborhood Ministries Update.)
• We continue to strengthen our safety net. If you would like to be a part of that network of care, if you are willing to contact others at BSPC via phone, email or card/letter, email Ann Palmerton at email@example.com
The God who raised Jesus from the dead is at work in our lives and in our world.
Take good care of yourselves and good care of others.
Amy Miracle, Pastor
Broad Street Presbyterian Church
